Series and parallel Circuits 4th grade
one item on a circuit. example a light bulb or a motor
comes from an energy source
d-cell battery,a solar cell,or a wall socket
an incomplete circuit
one d battery one wire and a light bulb
complete circuit or a closed circuit
one wire connects the base lightbulb to one end of the D-cell. the second wire connects the metal casing of the light bulb to the other end of the D-cell. this result in a bright shining lightbulb
the place on a D-cell and lightbulb were wires touch the component are called contact point.
a circuit with a break or an open circuit
each light bulb has its own pathway to the source of electricity
the energy will drain much faster when it supplies energy to two light bulbs
the current flows from first lightbulb then goes second lightbulb. sharing the cell or the source of electricity
cell last longer
control flow of electricity
